Jeanne Missey Osgood, MA, is an educator: yoga/Pilates/fitness teacher, President of the Tucson Poetry Society, poetry enthusiast and puppeteer. She has created one-woman shows from her experiences and interests through her life. Memorizing, reciting and writing poetry as well as telling wisdom stories were an important part of explaining truths as both a student development practitioner in higher education, as a fitness director and yoga teacher. When her love of puppetry was explored more fully, she found that it was quite effective and entertaining to share wisdom and poetry by having her puppets do most of the talking. She and her puppets now entertain audiences of all ages.

Granny is my first puppet and is a combination of all of the wise men and women who I have learned from in my life. I started creating her from my remembrances of Sunday School, Sermons and Luther League, then later on, both from research on older adult development as part of a Master's degree from Bowling Green State University and from an edX course about Happiness from the Center for Greater Good, University of California, Berkeley. She is the embodiment of high moral character, goodness and happiness!
Building giant puppets for parade these days!
